John Brown, MD

Harris B Shumacker Emeritus Professor of Surgery

Specialty: Cardiac Surgery

Medical School: Indiana University School of Medicine

Residency: University of Michigan

Fellowship: University of Michigan


John W. Brown was Chief of the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery for 20 years and is the Harris B Shumacker Professor Emeritus of Surgery at Indiana University School of Medicine.  Dr. Brown is a native of southern Indiana and attended Indiana University for both his undergraduate and medical school education, completing his MD degree in 1970.  He and his wife, Carol Ann, moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan where he completed his general surgery residency in 1976 and his cardiothoracic surgery residency in 1978.  From 1972-1974 he served as a clinical associate in cardiac surgery at the National Heart and Lung Institute in Bethesda, Maryland. 

 

In 1978, Dr. Brown returned to Indianapolis and to Indiana University School of Medicine as an assistant professor of surgery in the division of cardiothoracic surgery.  Since then he has worked his way up through the academic ranks and became Professor of Surgery in 1988.  He assumed the duties of section director of the division of cardiothoracic surgery in 1990, a position he held for the next 20 years.  He became the Harris B Shumacker Professor of Cardiothoracic Surgery in 1993.  Dr. Brown also served the section as the residency program director and trained over 80+ cardiothoracic surgeons who currently practice in the United States, and several who practice abroad. 

 

Dr. Brown’s primary clinical interest is complex congenital heart disease and cardiac transplantation but he also continues an active practice in acquired cardiac disease.  He has been active throughout his career in both bench and clinical research and has published more than 300 papers and book chapters in the field of cardiothoracic surgery.  He is a member of many national and international societies which include The Society of Thoracic Surgeons, American Association of Thoracic Surgery, European Association of Cardiothoracic Surgery, and the American Surgical Association.  He has given invited talks throughout the world.  He has served on the Thoracic Surgery Residency Review Committee and was Chairman for 2 years.  He served as President of the Thoracic Surgery Director’s Association from 2007-2009.  He is serving as president of the Congenital Heart Surgeons Society of North American from 2012-2014.  There are 12 surgeons in Dr. Brown’s division and 3 of the 12 are busy congenital heart surgeons. 

 

Dr. Brown and his wife, Carol Ann, actively own and operate a crop and livestock farm near Gosport, Indiana where they both grew up.  They enjoy many summer and winter outdoor activities.  They have 3 married children and 5 grandchildren.
